It is very important to wear sunscreen every day for every season, all year long - not only in the summer! - to protect our skin, since we are exposed to sun every day. But to be honest, it was quite hard for me to find a suitable sunscreen for my very acne-prone skin, that is why I decided to give this Etude House Sunprise Super Aqua SPF 35/PA++ a try.
So, let's find out my opinion on this product~!
Well.. I have been using this product almost every day for these past 5 months.
It contains 70g of the product inside. I bought it for IDR 95.000, and now you can easily order it on Etude House's official global site for $8.50.
This product comes in a squeeze tube with a twist cap. I think it looks so summery, since the dominant colors on the packaging are white and yellow, especially with those cute beach materials on it~
Uh-oh, actually this product is supposed to be travel-friendly.. but unfortunately, it managed to squeeze out of the tube and get inside the cap every time I carry it in my makeup bag duh. Ah no, it does not leak since the cap is quite tight.. but yeah it was still a mess la! >_<
It has a light perfumy floral scent. It smells nice though, but yeah I honestly prefer a sunscreen that contains no fragrance in it anyway. And it also contains alcohol ugh.
The consistency of this product is not too runny, but not too thick either. It is also very easy to spread, and quickly absorb into my face.
I usually apply a thin layer of this sunscreen all over my face, and add an extra layer only on the most sun-exposed areas of my face - such as my forehead, nose, and cheeks. And on those lazy days, I only apply this sunscreen with a little bit of powder to reduce the shine on my face~
It does not leave a white cast on me, it feels very light, and it also does not feel thick or greasy - like other sunscreens out there that I have tried before. And oh, actually it works quite good as a light moisturizer under base makeup as well.
Overall.. this is a pretty good sunscreen for my acne-prone skin, but this is not my Holy Grail la, since there are plus-and too many-minus points on this product and the SPF is not enough for me. But yeah this one does not break me out, so I had no other choice but to continue wearing this product until I find the better one with a higher SPF lol~
So, what is your HG sunscreen? I would really appreciate it if you can share it with me ^^
Thanks a lot for reading this post until the end, and have a lovely day!
